Digital Underground D.U.N. x G "Step Up"

“Sex Packets,” thedebut studio album of the hip hop/pop sensation Digital Underground, wasoriginally released in 1990. In 1998, the album was selected as one of TheSource Magazine’s “100 Best Rap Albums Ever.”  “Sex Packets II-The Mixtape” pays homage to the 32-year-old classic with whimsicalrenditions as well as new sex-laced, funk-filled, cosmically tingedofferings. 

 

“Iwas concerned with not seeing Shock properly celebrated andacknowledged so we wanted to do our part. He was a brilliant musical geniusthat I shared creative space with,” cites Chopmaster J.  “Itstill blows my mind that it’s been 32 years since we envisioned a classicthat was nominated for both the Grammy and American Music Awards. The NextGeneration of D.U. puts a new spin on our old classic that does notdisappoint. The new iteration of D.U. is a departure from any D.U. line-upof the past with new bandmate MEGA, but there’s also acameo by D.U. alumni, Money B. As our most legendary bandmember Tupac always said, ‘you either evolve or becomeirrelevant’ and evolution is our only quest.

 


     “Not many newartists get to launch their careers in the footsteps of legacy,” adds SOTU.“I’ve got D.U. in my DNA! While ‘Sex Packets II - The Mixtape’ sets it offfor DUNxG, we are dropping our debut album, "EVOLUTION" onJune 10th. The single "MOVE" from that project,is out now on all streaming platforms. The D.U. lives! 

 

“Sex Packets II – The Mixtape” is the first ofmany releases from the Chopmaster J Legacy Series whichincludes a body of work featuring such acts as Dave Hollister and GeorgeClinton to name a few.
